Location: Sonoma, CA
Shape: Light
Duration: 5 mins
Characteristics: The object emitted other objects, The object emitted beams, The object changed color
Bright red pulsating light that remained motionless for a long duration, ascended and moved rapidly, red droplets falling from object

In the Northeast sky I saw a pulsating red light that looked like an approaching helicopter. I dismissed it as that while I was changing a headlight on my car.

After a minute or so I noticed that it never moved. I stopped to stare at it thinking that I was witnessing a rare sighting of Mars but realized Mars is not in tonights sky...then the object ascended extremely rapidly AND moved further South and remained stationary.

This grabbed my attention and astonishment!

Then the red pulsating light began to emit more white light as bright as a searchligh on a helicopter from far away. Then the object shifted rapidly to the West and remained stationary. Then I knew I was seeing a UFO...while looking at it and trying to yell for my wife I saw red droplets fall from the object...these tiny droplets were redder than any flare...similar to the red plastic color of a tail light lens...the red tear drops dimmed and then were extingushed. The speed that these droplets fell was abnormal, the color was abnormal, and what could this be?

I finally ran inside to grab my wife who was too slow to come outside and of course the object was gone.

I find it hard to believe that I was the only one who witnessed this...please come forward. I have seen several UFO's in my life while camping and fishing in remote area's and have several witnesses to other events. This time I am posting it.

My background: Father and husband --thirty years old...I do not drink and I do not take any medications or drugs. I am college educated and a sales man in the Bay Area.
